A rumored Liverpool target has had a fantastic year in front of goal
Marca in Spain stated in October that Anfield was a possible destination for Kylian Mbappe.
There were and still are worries about Mbappe’s long-term future at PSG, and Liverpool were connected with a surprise move in the run-up to the World Cup.
Will he sign with the Reds? Can they afford him at all?
There are many questions, but one thing is certain: Mbappe will be the world’s finest player in terms of goals in 2022.
That’s because the 23-year-old France international netted a penalty on Wednesday night, bringing his total for club and country this calendar year to 56 goals in 56 games.
Nobody has scored more goals for club and country than the Liverpool-linked striker, according to UEFA, with Erling Haaland [45 goals in 42 games] coming in second and Robert Lewandowski [42 in 50] coming in third.
Even after signing Cody Gakpo, Jurgen Klopp still needs another world-class goalscorer in his squad.
Mohamed Salah will reach 31 next year and will undoubtedly begin his decline from his prime, while Darwin Nunez remains inconsistent in front of goal.
Over the last seven days, the Uruguay international has squandered numerous chances against Manchester City and Aston Villa, scoring none of them.
Mbappe is miles ahead of Liverpool’s £85 million summer signing, but whether they consider him a serious target remains to be seen.
